Independent Trucks was set up by Fausto Vitello, Jay Shuirman, Kevin Thatcher, and Rick Blackhart of Santa Cruz, California, and was one of only three companies in the skateboard truck market. When the first Independent „Stage 1“ trucks hit the market over 30 years ago, there were only two alternatives: the not very responsive Bennet trucks or Tracker trucks, which in turn were not very robust. So, Independent copied the geometry of Bennet Trucks, replaced the plastic baseplate with a more solid metal and created the Independent Stage 1 as an introductory model. Since the creation of Stage 1, Independent Trucks has paved the way for the future of skateboard truck technology. Since then, they've arrived at the Independent Stage 11, and on the way there, they have always adjusted and optimised the parameters such as steering behaviour, stability and weight and developed innovations that reduce the risk of wheel bites and prevent wear and tear on the Kingpin. In addition to skateboard trucks and matching accessories, Independent Trucks also offers a large range of streetwear. The t-shirt, hoodie, caps & co. designs are mostly based on the brand logo, which is inspired by the Alisee cross. The Independent logo is one of the most well-known in the skate business and ensures a high level of recognition.
